Music Mondays

I don't get to hear much new music these days. I am a stay-at-home mom now, and I always used to hear most of my new music driving in my car on my way to school or work. But now I don't go either of those places. So I probably first heard this song on my way to Target.

As usual, there is some language. If you 'd like to follow along with the lyrics, you can click here.

I like this song because it is another example of an uplifting rap song. You can't really have too many of those. I like how he talks to kids through so much of it, and the international focus. I have been lucky enough to see Lupe Fiasco in concert, and I am really glad that he makes such thought provoking, well-written and catchy music.

On a quasi-related note: My last post has elicited some varied and passionate reactions. I've enjoyed reading the comments, and am glad to see people taking the time to weigh in on what I had to say. I'm thinking I should probably get started on my responses soon if I want to be ready in time for follow-up fridays. If you would like to get in on the discussion, click here.
